GARAGE FIND SEARS GT18

Post  Georgia SS on October 8th 2014, 9:41 am

HI
THOUGHT WE MAY NEED A STORY TO KEEP THE FORUM ALIVE. MOST TALES ARE ABOUT BARN FINDS, BUT MY FIND WAS IN A CARPORT. A 1978 GT18 WITH 350 HOURS, NEVER BEEN WET, FOUND SOME TRACES OF POLISH/ WAX IN PLACES, PAINT LOOKS LIKE NEW WITH A FEW SCRATCH MARKS AND A BIT OF RUST FROM SNOW SALT IN MISSOURI WHERE IT LIVED UNTIL 2000 & WAS RETIRED TO FLORIDA, ORIGINAL OWNER PURCHASED THE TRACTOR WITH A DOZER BLADE FOR SNOW REMOVAL, THE MOWER DECK WAS BOUGHT LATER SO HAS VERY LITTLE USE, WHEN THE ORIGINAL OWNER PASSED THE SON MOVED THE TRACTOR TO FLORIDA & STORED IN A VERY CLEAN, DRY CARPORT. TNE GAS IN THE TANK WAS HORRIBLE, DUMPED IN A COUPLE OF GAL. OF PREMIUM WITH MARVEL MYSTERY OIL, A NEW BATTERY, A SHOT OF GAS IN CARB. & FIRED ON FIRST ROUND, ALMOST LIKE GOING BACK IN TIME TO SEARS & PICKING UP A GT18. PS THIS MAKES #20.
NOT THE RUSTY IRON FEVER, JUST THE IRON FEVER.
HAVE A GOOD DAY Smile
JIMMY

Good find! Sounds like a sweet machine.

That would be a once in a lifetime find around where I live. Most of the old Sears around here have been ridden hard and put away wet. I have yet to find one in that condition.
